Hand out freebees and jobs to people who find their way to this country, and you’ll get a lot of people finding their way to this country. From Patrick J. Buchanan at buchanan.org:
During a Democratic debate in 2020, the candidates were asked if their health care plans would cover “undocumented immigrants.”
Each raised his or her hand, including front-runner Joe Biden.
From that stage, the message went forth: If the Democrats win this election, then it is amnesty for all and open borders in America.
The message was reinforced by repeated Democratic praise for sanctuary cities, by calls to “abolish ICE” and end deportations, by pledges to stop work on Donald Trump’s wall, if not to tear it down.
Message sent to Mexico, Central America and the Third World:
If the Democrats win and you make it across the border into the United States, under President Joe Biden, you will not be sent back. After only a brief hassle, the economic opportunities and social welfare benefits of the richest country on earth will be open to you and yours.
Hence, when Biden won, a new and potentially historic surge to the Southern border began, and the number of illegal arrivals and crossings are in the growing thousands every day.
According to a White House domestic policy council document, the number of children who, without a parent or guardian, will arrive at the border in 2021 will be about 117,000 — 50% higher than the record number of children who arrived in the 2019 humanitarian crisis.
